I am a rabid Pratchett fan from the US who got to get in before the wave hit here because I had UK and Canadian friends who introduced us, to our eternal gratitude. I hope you won't think it rude, having only just met, but I have a huge favor to ask of you.
I am writing my Master's Thesis on Terry Pratchett. In the course of my research, I found a bit where he was complaining that the UK media always just kind of laughed off his new books, mostly without even reading them, but that he had gotten some legitimate reviews from the US. Does anyone have a clue where I might have seen that? Because two full days of research has not turned it up, and I don't even know if it would have been in a book or online. If you know, please let me know, because I am dying a slow death. It did not seem germane when I first saw it; now it is vital, of course.
Though I am in the last weeks of this paper, I not only still love Pratchett's work, I have an even greater respect for what he does. Watching my fellow Master's students, I can tell you this is a decided anomaly--many of the students never want to hear their author's name again!
